On my recent trip to Orlando, FL I found some time to visit Downtown Disney. I live near Downtown Disney in Anaheim, CA and assumed that the Florida would be the same. I have to admit that it's a lot better!
It was so much bigger, had better restaurants, more stores, and a cupcake shop!
Yes, Downtown Disney in Florida has a Babycakes Bakery. Babycakes originated in New York City, but has branched out to LA and Orlando. Babycakes is different than most cupcake shop as their delicacies have no gluten, wheat, dairy, casein, and eggs.
I tried to review Babycakes three years ago when my husband brought my some across the country. They didn't survive and I couldn't review them.
Now was my chance to try a fresh Babycakes cupcake! I actually picked up one cupcake top. Yes, it's just the top of a cupcake! And yes I only picked one item. I really wanted to try the donuts pictured above, but this was the perfect amount of cupcake I needed to satisfy my craving and do a quick review.
I picked a Chocolate Blondie cupcake top and I wasn't impressed. Maybe it's just because I am pro-dairy, gluten, wheat, and egg, but this cupcake just didn't do it for me. Maybe if I was vegan I might be satisfied with my pick, but this cupcake lacked the buttery frosting and sweet cake.
I'm a cupcake snob. Yes I admit it. I love lots of butter, sugar, and richness of a delicious cupcake. I have yet to find a vegan cupcake that wows me. I'll continue my search...
